I DIDN'T MOVE.........

(My apartment block in Benalmadena Spain)
I DIDN'T MOVE............
(a poem I wrote after the breakup last year from a relationship)
I didn't move from The Costa Del Sol
Away from the weatheer so hot.
To remain in an apartment so boring,
If that's what you thought......well I did not.

We never go anywhere special,
Each day is the same I declare.
Shopping is the highlight of the day,
What do you bloody well care?

I didn't move from The Cosata Del Sol
To feel as unhappy as I do.
I came because I thought we had a future together,
A future between me and you.
 (picture of me and son)
You think a trip to The New Forest
Would satisfy me for another year.
We were only out for two hours,
Frightened to miss Countdown on TV I fear.

Everything has to be your way,
Well perhaps that can be dealt.
You've hated me from the time I moved in,
You've known all along how I've felt.

I tried to keep my thoughts to myself,
God knows how hard I've tried.
I don't need the toilet as often than you think
I've gone into the toilet and cried.

Cried for the mistake I made.
On coming back to the UK.
Cried for what I thought it was going to be like
But I was taken in all the way.

I would be out of here like a shot
But I've nowhere to go....or the cash.
I'm beginning to detest every day spent with you,
You've made my life one big hash.

How I long for a "Life",
A life you cannot give.
"You're along time dead" so they say.
While I'm here I want to live.

If only I could turn the clock back.
But of course that can't be done.
It's too much trouble to get off your backside,
To go out and have some fun.

I didn't move from The Costa Del Sol,
To be with a miserable "Man" like you.
There's not many people like you around,
God broke the mould when he made you.

  1. Glad everything's been settled now Yvonne, and there's the life ahead wide open. It's a matter of planning for and by oneself and no one else need bother. Good luck to you, Ma'am!


    1. Thank you Hank for a wonderful reply, It is only now a year on that I am getting over this aweful experience.
      Enjoy your week-end.

  2. It's good for you to be out of a destructive relationship.

    1. I totally agree Sherry and thank you for the comment.
      Enjoy your week-end.

  3. What a sad story. I'm glad you're in a better situation now. Enjoy every day and make it your day, a day of fun and life.

  4. Sad but true Beverly, but at the end of the day I went into the relationship with my eyes open, though he didn't show his "Otherside side" until I was settled in..
    Thanks for your comment and enjoy your week-end.

  5. Hi Yvonne,

    It's good that you distanced yourself from such abuse. Immersing yourself in positivity and knowing that you are a kind, resilient lady is most certainly not lost of me or those who have the privilege of knowing you on our side of the computer screen.

    In peace and hope. Have a lovely Sunday, Yvonne.


    1. Still get off days Gary where positivity is way down, but as they say Rome wasn't built in a day.
      Keep well.

  6. Glad that's in the rearview mirror.

  7. I agree with you Sandra,
    Thanks for coming by.
